Royal claims he was sexually harassed by Kevin Spacey

“He says ‘Hey, let’s go out and have a cigarette’ — and then he touched me right on the balls under the table.”

Another day, another sexual harassment allegation, but this one has a so far unusual twist: it involves a royal.

Norway’s Ari Behn, now 45, claims Kevin Spacey groped him while at a VIP banquet in Oslo ten years ago.

In 2007, Spacey had just hosted a Nobel Peace Prize bash alongside Uma Thurman when Ari said he was chatting with the two-time Oscar winner.

“We had a nice conversation, he was sat next to me,” Ari, husband of Princess Martha Louise, said.

“After five minutes, he says ‘Hey, let’s go out and have a cigarette’ — and then he touched me right on the balls under the table.”

“I got more than I bargained for.”

He told the radio host he exclaimed: “Eh, maybe later.”

Ari divorced Princess Märtha Louise of Norway last year after marrying in 2002.

His wife, 46, is the daughter of King Harald V and fourth in line to the throne.

The couple share three daughters together; Maud Angelica, 14, Leah Isadora, 12, and nine-year-old Emma Tallulah.

The Princess spoke out last year about the difficulties of divorce.

"I have the position I have in Norway, which means I have to share the things happening in my life whether positive or negative and, as you know, I'm going through a divorce, which is a very painful period in my life,” she said.

"You can work at being more honest with yourself, and then deal directly with your unique and deep feelings. Of course, it is difficult and tedious, but it also means that you can process it and recover faster…Without that knowledge, I would not be here now."

Since actor Anthony Rapp alleged Spacey made sexual advances to him when he was 14-years-old, at least 11 others have come forward to add to the allegations.
